    CarWale's Take

    Good Things
    • First-ever M-Powered X3
    • Driver’s SUV packed with an explosive performance
    • Can drift like how a proper M Car should
    • Iconic Off-Roader with world-renowned capabilities
    • Comes with modern hardware, features and customisation
    • Not as expensive as we expected it to be
    Could be Better
    • Expensive being a CBU
    • Stiff and jittery ride
    • Updated model coming out globally soon
    • Not the easiest car to manoeuvre in city
    • Even though it’s not utilitarian, the cabin is noisy
    • Ergonomics could have been better
